Hypertension and high cholesterol can narrow the arteries that deliver the blood to the kidneys. The narrowed of these arteries can decrease the distribution of blood to the kidneys.


When your kidneys get lower blood than normal, they know it as the alarm of dehydration and then they will respond it by producing more hormones to trigger your body to retain more water and sodium. As a result, then additional fluid will fill into the blood vessels, and your BP will go up.

Overtime, the narrowed arteries to the kidneys can get worse, and this also can be potential to cause kidneys damage.

How does too much sugar in bloodstream in diabetic people cause chronic kidney failure?

In healthy people, the chance of developing prolonged excessive glucose (sugar) in the blood stream is very low. Typically, the amounts of insulin released by pancreas in people without diabetes are powerful enough to keep blood sugar not rise higher than normal.

But in diabetic people, their blood sugar can fluctuate easily. Therefore, they need to stick with an appropriate diet to help maintain their blood sugar as normal as possible, because poor blood sugar control can be dangerous. There are some complications of diabetes, and kidney damage is one of them!

According to Health Wise Organization, poor blood sugar control in diabetic people causes about almost 35 percent of all cases of chronic kidney disease.

Over time, too much glucose in the blood can be potential to damage the lining of arteries that carry blood to the kidneys. And if the blood sugar level remains high, it can gradually damage the kidney and reduce its function which then eventually can lead to a kidney failure.
